    Red face Ordering to the USA

    My fellow Canadians,
    Any problems ordering from Joann's Fabrics online?
    I've just tried to create an account and all is well up to inputting my postal code.
    The 'zip code' does not acknowledge a postal code and I can't see anyway around this.
    Any help out there?
    If not, then I am trying to find a Canadian supplier of Disney Licensed Fabric.
    Thanks and have a Happy New Year to all, filled with good things such as health, happiness, and
    the love of family and friends.
    Those who sleep under a quilt sleep under a blanket of love.

    What about Favourite Fabrics in Buffalo? She also is a poster here under the same name. Her site seems to have a wide variation of fabrics, so I'm only guessing that she would have the fabric you are looking for.

    Ugh. Ordering from Jo-Anns in Canada is, well, sadly, impossible at this point. While they'll *happily* put a hold on your credit card, they won't actually ship you anything. You can't even use a canadian credit card to buy online and ship to a post office box - the billing address for the card *has* to be in the US. There was a thread about this awhile ago, with the Snowbirds visiting the US and trying to buy online and have it shipped to their US vacation spots - no dice.

    If you're in southern ontario, Len's Mill stores do have the licensed disney fabric, usually with the children's stuff. Also try checking out the walmarts. I think I remember seeing it in the KW area ones, not sure about anywhere else.

    Speaking of Len's .... for those who can get to one .... Kidd/Unique notions are all 50% off til the store closes tomorrow/Saturday. Also, the green tag sale fabrics are all 50% off the green tag.

    Thank you to all of the responses. I love Len's and would gladly take a trip to Port Dover just to spend a few hours there. I think that will be my next step.

    Steer clear of Dover next Friday ..... or maybe that's why you're heading that direction?

    Remember Len's have several stores ..... and what one has, the other may not.
    I'm thinking Guelph's is the largest and broadest selection, being that's the home base.

    I didn't know Len's was now in Woodstock ... where abouts?


    For anyone in Woodstock area .... Country Patchworks is just outside of town. Terrific store.
    Then you're just a hop skip and a jump to a quilt store in Shakespeare.

    If you're ever looking for Batiks ... probably the largest selection I've seen is in Guelph at Triangle Sewing.

    To those fellow Ontarians, thanks for the help. I went to Len's Mill in Stoney Creek/Hamilton and got exactly what I need. Hurray! LOL about Woodstock's new Len's not yet dirty, that is part of the charm, isn't it? Oh, yes, no Port Dover on Friday 13th. Yikes, too many bikers! My poky little Len's may not have everything but this time, it came through for me.

    It's all the "luck of the draw" when you go to Len's. They might have it today. Then someone comes and scoops it up and it's gone!! ...... or more so, it's left in another area of the fabrics ... it's there, but just can't be found!
